Moldavite

Moldavite is found in the Moldau River Valley (known in the Czech Republic as the Vlatava) about 200 miles east from Nordlinger Ries, the sight of one of the greatest cataclysm in Earth’s history. 15 million years ago 2 astroids collided into earth at a speed of 40 thousand miles per hour.  The earth’s bedrock was compressed to a quarter of its original size at the moment of impact, causing an explosion that released 250 thousand times more energy into the atmosphere than that of Hiroshima.  The mushroom cloud created by the explosion was nineteen miles high and full of vaporized bedrock and what was left of the astroid.  250 cubic miles of rock were moved by the impact and life ceased to exsist for 60 miles in every direction. It is even probable that the world’s climate was instantly cooled and altered by the tremendous energy released in the atmosphere.  As the gaseous, vaporized rock cooled, it merged and liquified with the extraterrestrial rock of the astroids thus creating a glass like tektite known today as moldavite. The theory that Nordlinger Ries is the event that created Moldavite is still under scientific debate, though it is the most widely accpeted in the scientific community.

 

Historically, moldavite has been recognized for its profound energetic qualities by humans for more than 25,000 years. In antiquity is has been called “emerald” though all green stones used to be called emerald, it is only more recently that they have been chemically differentiated.  It was found alongside the famous Venus of Willendorf (a famous paleolithic goddess statue discovered in 1908) and has also been speculated to being none other than the legdendary Holy Grail.  The grail has been said by some to be a stone or an emerald that fell from the sky, and not literally a cup.  Moldavite has many signifagant similarities to the claims made about the Holy Grail.

 

Moldavite’s prolific energetic properties are not unlike the event in which it was created.  Its power can manifest a variety of revolutionary personal experiences in both our inner and outer worlds.  This stone is associated with the energy of storm, bringing cleansing and renewal.  This is a stone of personal revolution that will demolish old patterns, dismantle outgrown belief systems, and set one upon thier soul’s true path.  It lends itself to a visceral experience of human potential, and will also inspire a healthy respect for the greatness of spirit.  Just as moldavite is the vibrational glowing alchemy of two worlds colliding, it can lead one into thier colassal potentials, and straight into one’s fated spiritual path, though the journey may not always be comfortable. Moldavite bestows the energy and motivation one needs to make nesasary and difficult life changes.  It imparts determination, or a refusal to settle for a mediocre present, in favor of chasing blissful dreams.  It can lend courage, by giving us glimpses of our greatest fears, the size and scope of them.  And in seeing these fears we are brought to the vicseral experience of just how boundless our soul is, and that we are in fact an ocean of spirit and our fears only a drop of water in the vastness of that ocean.
